    * "Though more is not always better, it is here, making this volume even better than the original—fuller and wiser in its Giver-like understanding of the role of memory and of literature in our lives... Timeless and wise." 

    —Kirkus, STARRED review 

     

    "Throughout, Lowry’s winning combination of personal anecdotes—from laugh-out-loud incidents to family tragedies—with beautifully selected photographs and apt quotes from the author’s body of work makes this one to be remembered." 

    —Horn Book Magazine
